Congrats, Florida!!!

I'm not a fan of Florida by any means, but I have to respect what its football program and athletic department have accomplished over the past few years.

To win two BCS Championships (they aren't "national" championships since the BCS doesn't really allow for that to happen) in three years is stunning. In college, there is just so much turnover by having seniors graduating every year and freshman coming in and needing to catch up with everyone else.

Add in the back-to-back NCAA Championships that their hoops team won, and this has been one heck of a four year stretch.

The Gators are worthy champs whose defense just shut down the historically high-powered Oklahoma offense. And when it was winnin' time, Tim Tebow showed us why he is in the conversation for greatest college football player of all-time.
